My Awesome Uncle Ralph is also from Brawley and fought in the Pacfic for our rights, and oh yeah he is MExican too. The best part about it is that he is still alive, Im glad someone noticed this. I mean Im not like for La Raza or anything but this man was in the Pacific before McCarthur got there, big stuff. He was like 11th infantry or something. Purple Heart and wonderful man. Ralph Molina
